Kybella vs Neck Lift
The right procedure for you is really going to depend on your expectations, budget and ability to take time off to heal. A neck lift is definitely going to deliver the most dramatic results. Kybella only addresses the submental fat under the chin. Also, it takes multiple treatments while a neck lift is a one shot deal. However, there is no recovery time with Kybella while there always downtime with any surgical procedure. Hope this helps.

Kybella or Lipo
Thank you for your question vcampos1. Kybella and liposuction are great treatments for the double chin, or submental fullness. Amazing results can be seen with both treatments so it is important to understand the differences. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure. There is a longer recovery time and you will need to wear a band around the neck for a couple of weeks. The results are seen quickly and can be very impressive. Kybella is the first FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. There is swelling for about a week; this is the most common side effect. Two to four treatments are required and results are seen much more slowly. This is the information we provide patients so that they are educated and able to make the best choice for them. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Kybella/Belkyra vs Ultherapy vs Chin Lift
Kybella or Belkyra is an injection that dissolves fat. Ultherapy is ultrasound technology designed to tighten the skin by stimulating your natural collagen production. Lipo Lift or submental liposuction is surgical procedure with substantial downtime. We encourage clients to meet with your Physician to determine which procedure is right for you.
Double Chin and Jowls
Kybella is a great treatment for the submental fat and permanently reducing it. From your photos you may have more improvement with Coolsculpting - with the cool-mini applicator. It will work well and have excellent results. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Grene

Double Chin Treatment
The jowl area is a unique area that must be handled properly otherwise the face can be distorted. This area can be handled at the same time, but the surgeon must be skilled in the approach.
Kybella is now a non-surgical treatment which is very effective and may work for you.
Liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia and also, give great results.
The neck lift procedure is a surgical procedure that yields the best result and can eliminate the jowls at the same time. Please look at the surgeon's results to determine which procedure will give you the best result.
A proper examination would be the best to determine which one would work best for you.
